RULES AND SAFETY
Welcome to TUFF Entertainments EP –Day, zombie infested 4K. The apocalypse is here and it’s time to see if you’ve got what it takes to survive. Speed alone won’t save you in this race. Runners will have to navigate the series of challenging obstacles and escape the horde of the undead waiting to claim them as one of their own.
A few guidelines to make your zombie race experience as fun as possible.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO SURVIVE and REMINDERS:
•Bring an official form of identification (license, passport, photo ID, etc.). We will not be able to let you into the event otherwise.
•A signed race waiver. Participants under the age of 18 must bring a printed waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian to the event or we cannot let you participate.
•Cash for food, beverages, and zombie gear
•You will be covered in mud, zombie guts, body parts, and other apocalyptic liquids after the race, so bring a towel and a change of clothing (especially socks and clean shoes to change into). We will have a “decontamination zone” and changing rooms at the event so you can clean off and enjoy yourself.
•Bring $5 cash for parking, and please have cash ready. We highly recommend you carpool.
•Feel free to bring a lawn chair if you want to stick around and catch some of our live entertainment.
•Check the weather before the event to make sure you are prepared (i.e., umbrellas, warm gear, cold gear, wet gear, etc.).
•Be prepared to get your groove on.
•Costumes are encouraged! ( We are close to Halloween so lets show those Zombies Superman, Batman, Clowns, and Princesses are not afraid to show up) Prizes will be given throughout the day!
•We recommend you arrive at least 1 hour before your wave time to allow time for parking, packet pickup, and travel to the starting line.
RUNNER and ZOMBIE RULES:
•If all of your flags have been taken, you are NOT automatically transformed into a zombie and you may NOT take another runner’s flags, chase other runners, or pick up flags off the ground.
•Direct and intentional physical contact with any runner or zombie is strictly prohibited. You are not to touch, hit, punch, tackle, roundhouse kick, slap, scratch, pinch, spit on, bite, or do anything harmful to the physical health of our zombies or other runners… no matter how frightened or frightening you may be. Those in violation of this rule will be automatically disqualified and potentially escorted off of the grounds, without refund.
•Flags are to be visible to course officials and zombies (not covered by long clothing or tutus) and to be worn on the sides of the body.
•Participants must wear their EP Z-DAY Bracelet . Participants will not be allowed to race without an official EP Z-DAY Bracelet.
•Working as a team with friends, family, and strangers is allowed and recommended… it’s the living vs. the undead. Use your juicy brains and the ones around you.
•Visibly intoxicated guests will not be allowed to participate in the race. Please arrive to your wave time SOBER.
•Runners and zombies must be 14 years of age or older by race day in order to participate.
•No weapons or mock weapons will be permitted on the premises.
•No drugs, outside alcohol, or outside food/beverages are permitted on the property. Approved beverages include one factory-sealed water bottle, sports drink, or energy drink up to 1 liter in size.
•No alcoholic beverages are to be consumed by people under the legal drinking age.
•No pets are allowed into the event grounds. Not even if they’re trained to hunt zombies.
•Participants and spectators must abide by all instructions given from the race directors, race staff, volunteers, and medical personnel.
•Do not drink and drive.
•Photographers and videographers will be stationed along the course. Participants, zombies, spectators, and volunteers must sign a waiver to agree to allow the event producer (TUFF Entertainment) to use any pictures or video footage of the event for future promotional purposes.
Runners can choose to skip an obstacle, but since these are designed to help you escape the zombies’ clutches, it doesn’t bode well for your survival. If there are reasons you cannot complete an obstacle, due to medical reasons, please alert a course official to safely skip the obstacle. You may not skip an obstacle for no reason; there may be penalties. If you skip an obstacle, you will still be able to finish the race. TUFF Entertainment strives to create a fun experience for all those involved. Please be respectful of those around you in the festival area and on the course. Again, any direct and intentional physical contact with any runner or zombie is strictly prohibited. We are serious about this.
TUFF Entertainment EP Z-Day!
